Brenntag strengthens its reach and technology portfolio in Material Science with the acquisition of Lawrence Industries in the UK

Brenntag, the market leader in chemical and ingredient distribution, announced the purchase of Lawrence Industries Ltd., the UK's top independent specialty distributor. This acquisition strengthens the company's position in Material Science as well as the Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, and Elastomers (CASE), Construction, Polymer, and Rubber industries, as it adds a broad eco-system of leading toptier supply partners and a high-quality portfolio, with a focus on driving market needs for formulation solutions and a leading sustainability footprint.

Lars Schneider, Global President of Brenntag Specialties Material Science, comments: “The acquisition of Lawrence Industries will further strengthen our specialty offering in the UK and Ireland and is perfectly in line with our strategy in Material Science. Lawrence Industries has developed an industry leading reputation. I am deeply impressed with Lawrence Industries and its highly capable and outstanding team, their long-established regional presence, strong specialty portfolio and experienced technical set-up. I look forward to further expanding our technical and value-added services to our top tier suppliers and valued customers with a particular focus on innovative and sustainable solutions, leveraging each other’s capabilities.”

Lawrence Industries, founded more than 50 years ago, is a technically oriented independent specialty chemicals distribution firm headquartered in Tamworth, Staffordshire. The firm services a wide variety of markets in the United Kingdom and Ireland, providing high-quality additives, minerals, and catalysts. In 2023, the firms earned around 30 million GBP in revenue.

"We are excited to join the Brenntag family," says Lawrence Industries' Managing Director, Charles Henn-Allen. “Gaining the international reach is an important next step for us as a leading distributor of specialty chemicals in the UK. Moreover, acquiring access to Brenntag’s extensive Innovation & Application Centre network enable our current and future customers to benefit from best-in-class value added services.”

Brenntag Specialties plans to grow its Material Science reach via strategic acquisitions. Lawrence Industries will support this plan by considerably extending its base in the UK and Ireland, as well as growing its know-how and supplier range for value-added services.
